Preface* 



In pobHRbin/Bf the Galla Didiofifliry I am performing a holy 
datjr to the Author of it, my dear, everJamented brother Charles. 
It owes its origin to a three years* unremitted activity* which was 
unfortunately, interrupted by the too early death of my brother, at a 
time when a long wished-for sphere of action was opened to him. 
and a future prepared , which , on account of his great talents 
and intellectual energy, promised to become one of great scien- 
tific activity. But although the time granted by Heaven to his 
endeavours was so short, and but a very small part of what he 
commenced was completed; yet the r/esults of his studies in the 
field of African languages , geography , and ethnography, must 
still be considered a weighty contribution td a nearer acquain- 
tance with that part of the world, still covered* with so much 
obscurity, and one Worthy of ranking- with the discoveries, made 
by travels in those countries. 

As the present Dictionary is the first of the posthumous 
vrorks of my brother which has appeared in print, and it may 
k interesting to. those who may h^ve to eipploy [t, as well as 
to philologji^s in general, to become, acquainted with the manner 
in which he , far from Africa and . in the middle of Germany, 
proceeded so sucoeasfully in the stiady of the eonditiettand lan- 
guages of Africa, I will give a short- description of the progress 



— vm — 

of my brother, and will endeavour at the same time to make 
it answer the purpose of a biographical sketch. *) 

My brother Charles Tutschek was bom at Bayreuth on the 
13. January 1815, and after having passed the Gymnasium he 
resolved on devoting himself to philology. Certain circumstances 
compelled him to renounce his favourite study for that of juris- 
prudence, during the pursuit of which he still, however, occupied 
himself zealously, as if with a presentiment of his future desti- 
nation, not only with the living languages, but also with the 
Sanscrit, Hebrew, and Arabian. 

On his arriving in Munich in 1837 to finish his academical 
studies as a Jurist, he was appointed teacher to Prince Louis 
of Bavaria, and after the return of His Highness, Duke Maxi- 
miiian of Bavaria, from his travels in the East, he was entmsted 
with the education of the four blacks whom the Duke hud re- 
deemed from slavery, and brought to Munich. He undertook 
the unusual duty^ — filled with care, on account of the new: inter* 



•* 



^) According to the contents of the book, and as far as I remem- 
ber, according to the original purpose of the Author, a detailed 
treatise on the Gallas, historical, geographical, and ethnogra- 
phical, was to be added to the work; but this wai<i uiifbrta* 
nately but begun, and what 1 can give in regard to this, are 
mere hints; fd^ not origljial choice, but sad oecessily, has 
conducted me into the path trodden hy my brother, . aipd imposed 
pn me the duty of making what has been fiirt|iered by him, 
tributary to science as much as possible. I think, however, 
1 may express the hope that, if fortunate circumstances concur, 
1 shall be able to tread in the footsteps of my brother, in a 
more decisive and exclusive manner than has hitherto been the 
case, and that when I have made some preliminary studies, 
and can perhaps confer with a young Galla, still living in Ger- 
many, In the same manner as my 'brother, I shall be able to 
'Oom|»l6te much that is aow incomplete, and to «ave Vor seienee 
what now lies nsolesiS: and wnenltivaled before me. .

roption in his studies oa the one side^ and the possible failure^ 
from many causes, ot the enterprise on the other. Yet the 
novelty of the thing attracted him, and a scientific desire of 
learning something interesting, in regard to the home and former 
eircmnstances of these strangers , and of thus , perhaps , contri- 
buting something to a nearer knowledge of Africa, induced him 
to commence liis work with courage, on the 18. Nov. 1888. 

It is easy to be understood how great the difficulttes were, 
at the beginning of a course of instruction in which the teacher 
was deprived of what is so necessary to produce an effect on 
tlie scholar , a means of reciprocal communication , and so much 
the more when we consider that he had to contend in 
ius first endeavours, with almost insurmountable difficulties in 
the well-known mistrust in the Africans of all whites , partly 
inborn and partly produced by circumstances: besides this the 
boys did not understand what they intended to do with thenu 
and thus many troublesome months passed 9 during which my 
brother had to teach daily many hours, laughed at and derided, 
literally with hands and feet. 

At length at the end of January 1839, he gained by a cir- 
cumstance fortunately taken advantage of, — by kind attention to 
one of his pupils in a trifiing illness, the first great victory, the 
confidence of the latter; and he soon saw in him as well as in 
the others, the most obstinate suspicion changed into attachment 
and heart-felt filial affection. From this moment dates the first 
fragmentary intelligence of the life of each single one , which 
above all showed, that whilst the Duke thought he had entrusted 
to him the education of three Nubians and one Abyssinian, he 
had given him the representatives of four different tribes, a 
^aUoy a Umaie^ a Darfurian and a Denka. They had been stolen 
from their homes and had been sold on the Nile as slaves. 
Necessity had forced them to make themselves mutually under- 
stood, to learn the vulgar dialect of the Arabhui, though bit very 
u&perfectly; as they spoke four languages very diffenent from 
each other, and even from the known African languages, paiw 



— X — 

obtained theoi, three of them had not been longer thmk a year 
from their homes, and, therefore, being* safficiently old jmd en-* 
dowed with excellent capacities^ they were not only able 
to give information regarding their languages, bat also to form 
opinions of the circumstances of their countries, which merit a 
place beside the reports of former travellers in :thoae regions, 
and can even give explanations, more to be ^ depended on from 
many causes* 

The first results, still gained with great difficulty, of the 
investigations now commenced, were confined to a confinnalion 
of the travels of Ludolf, Brown, Salt, Seetzen, Burkhardt, 
Ruppell and Bruce, and of the statements contained in theiuf 
to an enrichment of the vocabularies noted down in them ; and 
to a settlement of the relative circumstances of each single in- 
dividual referred to. The first plans of maps and communication 
of interesting prayers, were made at this time, as far as their 
memory and good will could give them: the latter however 
was often interrupted by a relapse of their former mistrust, and 
by a taciturnity which lasted whole days together. It required 
great prudence to go safely to work , as the least inducement 
often caused them to maintain „that k\l they had confessed was 
a fable, and that they knew nothing of their own country, 
having been taken away when very little children.^^ Such re- 
lapses, however, became less frequent, nor could they be of 
long duration, as the conviction that nothing but good was meant 
them, became firmer and firmer. This was a natural consequence 
of a nearer acquaintance with our circumstances , and of their 
progress in their studies, which daily attracted their attention 
more and more; besides their former accounts were tested care- 
fully by comparisons and repetitions. 

The way till now adopted in the mere cdllection of words- was 
s<f on given op, and particularly in consequence of the afieonragefflent 
and advice which my brother received from Professor €barles 
Ritter of Berlin. My brother had written' to' this 'respected 



— XI — 

schalar, justly consideced the first aathority in African affairs, 
regarding his studies, and had the pleasure of receiving , as a 
mark of the mterest he had efxeited in him , > a report of that 
scanty information, which Professor Bitter 'had made in the 
monthly sitting of* the geographical society, ui May 1839. From 
this time forwm'd, my brother .directed all his attention to con* 
tinaal a>aversatioBS with his pupils on all the circumstances of 
their country, although within a very limited horizon ; and while 
bis daily increasing enthusiasm succeeded in this, he sought so 
to nourish and ennoble their desire for home, which still existed, 
as to make them comprehend , that the communications made to 
iim, united with what they received at his hands, were the 
safest means of stilling that longing after their fatherland , and 
also of attaining that nobler aim — of contributing to the wel*- 
fare of their native country on a foreign soil, whither a hard fate 
had driven them, and of thus fulfilling a duty imposed on them 
by a higher hand. 

To the method followed from this time forward in this sense, 
that of allawing them to .dictate to him connected and maturely 
considei^ed representations of subjects, desired by him or origi- 
nating in themselves, • my brother was indebted for those nume*-- 
rQUs and highly interesting treatises, which afterwards served 
hiffl, together with the conversation of the persons referred to, 
as the sources and mines of: his ghilological , geographical, and 
ethnographical studies. As they are partly written with great 
solidity and elegance both in regard to style, contents, and 
arrangement, they may be considered as claiming to represent 
a sort of literature of the corresponding countries. In order 
to account for thiS(, notwithstanding the youth pf the authorities, 
it must be remembered, that the art of relating is a talent peculiar 
to all oriental people, and that those children of nature are, from 
earliest childhood, intimately acquainted with all the circumstances 
of their parents, villagers, and tribes, and are, therefore, enabled, 
>^itkthe diai^nesst of.observatiMi pecuHar to uncivilized nations, 
ticolarly ^those reteted to the Semitie ones. When (the Duke

to attain , at a very early period , to a clear view and opinion 
of tiiein. 

As the treasure gained, increased daily in tiiis manner, the 
necessity of devoting exclasive attention to the one or the other 
subject, became more and more apparent. The home and lan- 
guage of the Galla, Akafed'e Dalle (of the tribe of the Ho- 
raitnn Galla,) from Botchiin HambOy province of lAbany ^lilo, alas J 
was not to see his country again, but since 17. Mai 1841 has 
slept in German ground first attracted my brother's attention. 
That people which, divided into many tribes, has, sinee the 
middle of the 16? centmry, made itself so historically remarkable, 
and so dreaded by the Abyssinianiv^ on account of its continnal 
inroads and progress towards the North, was excellently repre- 
sented by the talented Akafad'e. My brother, too, without taking 
into consideration the political circomstances , (which, however, 
threw a considerable weight into the scale,) was partidnlarly 
attracted by the simplicity, euphony, and grammatical formation 
of the Galla language which became evident after bat a very 
short stady. He directed, therefore, without neglecting the 
othars, his chief attention to that , and in the short period of a 
year and a half, he succeeded so far as to speak with tolerable 
fluency , and to be able to accept the first invitation from the 
Royal Academy of Munich , to communicate to them the results 
of his studies. In the sitting, of the philosophical class on the 
2. January 1841, he read a report of the commencement and 
progress of his investigations , and the sketeh of a grammar of 
the Galla language; at the same time he laid before the class 
a tolerably complete Dictionary of the Galla Language, and 
many dictations, prayers, and songs, with commentaries regard* 
ing tbe language and circumstances. A treatise he had received 
a short time before on the Galla Language in JUinu (Extrffit 
du bulletin de la societe de geographic Aout 1839), read by Mr. 
Jomard, Librarian, in the Academy in Paris, was the first 
written proof of the correctness of his own results^ for he found 
in it but well known facts in the geographical parte, as also in 



— -1 



— xra — 

the few B^eeimeM of laafuf e. The iirayers are the same 
written down by his Akafad'e, excepting a difference in the 
orthography, which naturally produces a corresponding difference 
in the translation. What is there said of manners and customs^ 
agrees, with few exceptions, with his observations. But what 
was of more consequence than this , was the speaking proof 
which good fortune brought hjm, in the person of a second 
Galla. Otshu Aga from Urgeza in Sihu was placed , for two 
months, at the disposition of my brother by his deliverer from 
slavery , Mr. Pell, on his passing through Munich. By him 
n^tonly all he had gained and learned, was confirmed; but 
oiterials were also given for dialectical investigations; and the 
flumber of dictations, prayers, and songs, with geographical 
data etc. were increased by many interesting additions. Bet* 
ween Aga and Akafede, who, sadly revelling in the remem- 
brance of their lost country, soon concluded a bond of friendship, 
my brother caused a Galla correspondence. It consisted of 14 
letters , which , besides their philological worth , fbrm a good 
scale of the dispositions of mind and soul of the correspondents. 
Through A g a my brother also got acquainted with the suppo- 
sed Abyssinian girl of Prince Packler Muscau, Bilile (who 
died S7. Oct. 1840). She was from the Galla - country Guma^ 
Uid had tought Aga many of her songs which are also among 
the number of those noted down by my brother. Lastly a third 
Galla, A man Gonda from Uibi in Oimay brought to Europe by 
his Highness Duke Paul of Wi^temberg, closed the num« 
her of his authorithies. The latter he visited twice at the invi-^ 
tation of this scientific prince, and staid a considerable time with 
him. My brother laid great value on the communications of 
A man, although he is the youngest of all three, because he, 
being the son of an Aba Funo CUt. master of the cord , a sort 
of magistrate in the service of the Zarexa or prince) , had en- 
Joyed a better education than the other two, and was, therefore, 
(setter acquainted with the circumstances of his country, and 
^poke his language more correctly. 



— 3UV — 



As these three individuals passed in a certain order before 
my brother's enquiring eye, the comparisons and additions natu- 
rally produced considerable variations and enrichments of his 
former labours. Thus the Dictionary , which , when laid before 
the Academy, was very weak in regard to <Miho^raphy and 
etymology, has been put into the present improved form, built 
on a solid foundation, and brought in unison with the principles 
exhibited in the Grammar. ^ 

■ ■ 

Besides this more exclusive occupation with his Galla, the 
investigation of the circumstances of the home and language of 
a second of his pupils continued, who raised his interest in an 
equal, if not a still higher degree. It was Djalo Djondan 
Are of the people of the Yumaiesy who live below Kerdbfan 
under the 12' and 13' N. L. and the 46' and 47' E. L. under 
the sovereignty of the King of Tdkle (TakelCy Tokole). He was 
born at Deiingln in Tumale'Tpkolfen, and is the nepheAV of the 
hereditary prince (king) Wofter Mat^ who was still reigning 
there at his departure. His language represents in regard to 



*} The second part of the Diotiotiary, English - Galla, and if it 
should be considered advantageous, the third part also: Oer- 
man-6alla, I shall publish as soon Mter the first as possible. 
The above named grammar has, unfortunately, not received 
the same elaboration in all its parts, as in the verbs, numbers, 
and pronouns; and the samples of language which my bro- 
ther intended to add as an appendix to his grammar, are not 
properly arranged for this purpose. This is very much to be 
regretted, particularly in regard to the syntax of the Galla 
language, as my brother had collected so many materials for 
it, and always described the philological charms of it, as so 
great and enticing. 1 shall, however, give the grammar in its 
imperfect form to the public, as my brother has left it, bat 
shall add some samples of language, as I think, to advantage, 
together with the plans of maps.

soand, dknneter^ and internal fonnation , the ioontrary of the 
Galla language ; for, while the latter sounds soft and melodious^ 
not unlike the Italian language, and has like this, ^vith a great 
preponderance of vowels a proportional simplicity of form and ex« 
pression, the language of the Umale rounds hard and even rugged^ 
and offers, on account of the great number of its consonants, great 
difficulties of pronunciation, even to our German organs, accustomed 
to hard sounds. The forms are also so very various and peculiar, and 
the number of words and ideas in this language, is so superior to 
that in the Oalla, that if my brother had lived, he would have re- 
quired a much longer time and much more labour to penetrate 
into it, than he had required for th*e Galla language, which he 
had learnt in so comparatively short a time. But exactly this 
richness of the language, and still more the high degree of civili* 
^sation of the Yumahy (if I may use this expression of a people 
of central Africa,) upon which the communications of the highly 
gifted Djalo lead us to conclude, encouraged my brother to do 
the same with this as the Galla ; for however great the difS» 
CQlties may be, which the learning and comprehension of this 
language offer; yet the lexicographical and grammatical elabo- 
ration of it, would be so advantageous to the philologer in ge- 
neral , and the treasures which the knowledge of it would dis- 
cover, are so great, that any one would be sufficiently rewarded 
fer his trouble. Djalo 's dictations^) particularly, deserve the 
praises tliat have been bestowed above on their sterling wortli, 
as to form and contents ; and to the above must be added that they 
all bear the impression of matyre judgment and critical truth, 



^ I have three volumes of them iu my poasesaion, in which every 
possible relation of that interesting people is treated on, partly 
in i^gments and partly at large. The communications are di- 
vided into such as are the reproduction of the excellent me- 
mory of Djalo, and such as are his own productions as Aree 
compositions* 



a union of advantages which will onee make th^n appear as 
an essential enrichment of science, when they have been made 
kiiown t9 the public, after having been sifted and commented 
upon. From this description 9 certainly not aa exaggerated one, 
it will be perceived, that I have inherited the enthusiasm of 
my brother for these interjesting studies, and I seize here the 
opportunity of mentioning, that I #m firmly resolved, as far as it 
lies in my weak power, to follow the path entered by my brother, 
also in this, and to pay, partly at least, what he has remained 
indebted to science. The beginning is made, for Djalo is living 
at Munich, and assisted by his lively endeavours to co - operate 
in the good work, I have already been introduced by daily 
conferences with him, into the porch of the great building 
to be examined, and whether I shall arrive at a satisfactory 
goal will be very soon discovered. 

The third pupil of my brother is Mussalam Motekntn 
from Methem in Darfinr^ about 7 days' journey to the sotlth of 
Eobbcy the capital of the country. His information is also not of 
inconsiderable value, and his dictations, too, well merit elabo- 
ration.; for although they bear a more childish stamp upon them 
both in style and contents , and the reminiacenoences of M n s- 
salam do not seem to be so comprehensive as those of the before 
Darned authorities of my brother 5 yet the recommencement of in- 
quiries regarding his home and language, now that he is grown 
more mature, wiU not only afford us various ethnographioal no-* 
tices , but will also render it possible to complete a very rich 
vocabulary together with the draught of a grammar of his lan«* 
gaage. Mussalam still speaks it fluently, and as far as my 
trifling insight into its construction and character allow me to 
form a judgment, it does not ofl'er such difficulties, by far, to 
learning it, as that of the XJmcUe does. 

Lastly, of the fourth pupil Awan^ I will let, my brother 
speak himself. In the above mentioned lecture at the Academy, 
he said among other things: „In this boy, the youngest of all- 
Che may be about IS years old ,) I have observed something 



— Mtiir — 

psycoldjl^calty astMisliiA^^ wkich desenr^ff to be mhdi the sdb- 
ject of more partieiilur coasideration. ' During the whole' year 
namely, that I M^ai^ progressing so gaily with Ae others, he 
always answered very sadly that he' did not know any thing 
of his home^ having been too yoong when he left it fii the 
beginning I thought it; was the old mistmst that expressed itself 
in him; but having found him candid in every thing else, I took 
his assertion fbr truth, and left him unobserved for a considerable 
time', partielilarly as the other spnrces flowed so richly. This 
involuntary neglect on my part, united with the wantonness to- 
wards the weaker , so often to be observed among boys , was 
near producing bad consequences. The boy became still, morose^ 
- and at last I found him crying many days together, "ivlthout 
being able to discover the cause. When alone with me, however,' 
he told me that he was home-i^ick and that he longed to see his 
relations ; he said too that he remembered the name of his father, 
mother, and brother, bM that I would not believe him. Repenting 
of my former conduct 1 assured the weeping boy of my perfect 
confidence, and wrote the names down ; then I pressed him farther, 
and asked him if he did not remember any word of his language, 
and, after long consideration, he actually called to mind two : kuPy 
mooBtain, and Wr, river. To my great joy I found them both in 
RiippePs Vocabulary under the title of DarDenka. After having, 
on the following days, by continual persuasion on my part, and me* 
dilation on his, succeeded in remembering 6 or 8 words which a- 
greed with those ifi Rfippels Vocabulary, I mentioned Denkawi, the 
name of the people, which he recognised immediately as the 
name of his people. * It ' was delightful to go through the above 
mentioned Vocabulary with him and to observe the effect of the 
^vell known sounds upon the boy ; and it was also moving to 
see ihe joy of thiisr three black friends, whom I fbund, a quarter 
^^n hour after they had learnt the news, weeping round hia 
oedi, fdl of joy at his becoming, as it were, of equal birth to 
*em, by tnding Us native country. Pl-om that moment there 
^0 began for him quite k dfiTerent life. By continnal meditation

contribution . was limited to an. increased voqabulary. 

It will be. seen by the foregoing that the task which my 
brother had imposed upon himself, was a great and manifold one, 
and that the acknowledgments which the partial sohition of it, 
wd his endeavours in general, (tailed forth from the Munich 
learned world, and from foreign literati, and which acted so en- 
couragingly upon him^ were not undeserved. But what acted most 
beneiicially on the furtherance 2ind success Of his work , par- 
ticularly at the time when his relation to.his pupils was dissolved, 
was the active participation testified by the Geographical So-* 
ciety and the African Civilisation . Society, in London in repeated 
letters, a^d material assistance rendered him, through the helping 
Imnd of Sir Thoma^^ Dyke Acland, ,the Yicepresident of the 
latter Society. Sir Thomas Acland not <^iily sept al) fte books 
referring to l^is labours, which had appeared in lat^r times, but 
also a voluntary pecuniary support, tfius alonq enabling my 
brother to pursue his studies, which otherwise might have met 
\vkh a highly, disadvantageous interruption. I consider it n^y 
duty to make thi^;^ public acknowledgement so .mud^ the more, 
as Sir Thomas Acland made this sacrifice purely out of interest 
in the cause of science* This participation and the prospect 
united with it, of beiiig employed in. a scientific mission or ex** 
ptedition proceeding from England to Africa, and finally the in- 
terest which a German prince took in his studies, supported his 
wavering . constitution for a considerable time. When the preaent 
Dictianary was finished,. it was laid before His Royal Highness 
the Crown Prince of Bavaria, and ipy brother then ex- 
pressed a wish of pursuing his studies in Kgypt in a sittiilar 
inanner, by the redemption ai|d scientifi^^ investigation of black 
men. The Crown Prince, who is ever delighl^d to give assistwcet

pcneea of aoeh a journey to Egypt, he prfmiised, three wedLs, 
afterwarda, the 9«in necessary for « residence of two years in 
Cairo. Hot unfortunately this appointment was, as it wene, bnt 
a view of the promised land, for notwithstanding the endeavours 
of the first physicians jn Munich , and the use . of the baths at 
Ems, purchased with great sacrifices , his corporeal, powers di- 
minished more and more, and after his return to his native town, 
he fell a victim to the malady which had been undermining his 
eonstitation for the last yeitr, in the hoase of his parents on the 
6. of Sieptember 1843. Thus ended, much too l^rly, a life which 
had set itself the great aim of actively co-operating in the civi- 
lization of Africa ^ tins endeavour worthy of our century , and 
thus of adding his mite to the realization of the idea of Euro- 
pean cultivation and civilization, becoming the common property 
of all people. Although death prevented him from relating to 
the world, with his own mouth, what he had heard and seen in 
his mental wanderiBgSjt and from proving to them that it is w«ll 
worth the trouble to feel some interest for those people ; yet by 
the written words he has }eft hehind him, it is evident that the 
harsh judgment which has been pronounced by so many, on the 
moral and mental state of all the central African nations, and 
which keeps so many from directing their benevolence , and, at 
the same time, their activity to them, deserves a mitigation, to 
produce which was a second holy aim of my brother. The means 
for this were sufficiently laid down in the unconstrained narra- 
tives of his pupils , who were justly considered by him as a 
saf&cient aathority to be placed beside the African travellers, 
erafirmiiig Mid correcting them. May his wish and desire be 
ftililled, that the way so seldom trodden till now, ahd pursued 
almost occlusively by the English, najnely, that of acting 
upon Africans by means of Africans, may no longer remain so 
onfrequeiited ; may his example find imitators among the Ger- 
mans; and may the beginning which he has made, no longer 
remain a beginning , but be the point of departure^ the first link

The following: remarks are intended to facilitate ' the employment 
of the present DictioTiary, and the oomsrehenslon bf the geogrrapbleal 
and eihnographical circamstances of the people, whose langaage is 
partly represented here. 

The C^allas who, as has been already observed, dwell in nnmeroQS 
tribe9^} Eoi^nd the sooth af AbysBinia^ . haye^ according, to my brother's 
Inv^sti^afioBs,. most probably recejiveci their name ftpm their own lan- 
guage, and not from the Abyssiniaos as most authors (Tellez, Lu- 
dolf, and all later writers with the exception of Bruce) suppose. 
He derives it, according to his view, from the verb gaioy to go home, 
to seek one's home, and U to be brought in connecftion with the hi- 
storical fact, that the Gallas, driven by some cause or other from their 
homes in 1785, rushed in torrents towards Abysoinia, and made this 
country their home, -^ a view, in favour of whieh, besides other 
reasons, .tlile circumstance speaks, of their ^liiig theoMelves by this 
asme. This grent assemblage, of tribes wl^e extent towards central 
Aftica is not yet known, may have tbrmerly led an erriitic pastoral life, 
hut this is no longer the case. The Gallas live In the districts which 
my brother became more nearly acquainted with, in. villages , which 
as they consist of single farms, surrounded by a great extent of land, 
are probably very straggling in part. 

The chief occupations of the Gallas are agriculture and cattle 
breeding. The former is carried on so extensively in' the envirdns 
of the villages, that, from a scarcity of fodder for their numerous herds, 
very distant pastures must often be sought for, which csases .eontiniml 
didpates with, the neighbouring, tribes. In the villages artisans evesy 
particuliMrly. weavers, tanners, potters^ leather^P^uttei'S) metal-worker/i 
etc. etc., provide them with the necessaries of life .and warlike stores*

' more than 60 by name. 



Vbe Ibm of f ovemment is In the free tribes, i. e^ those • thftt are

monarohMal-40Bpotieal, and the dignity of king (moti) devoWies by i»* 
beritaoce to the male. deseottdaiits, (is some few of the tribes also to 
the female,) er the moli is changed by eleolion, whioh Is. renewed 
after a eertain nwnber of years. Uader the moH stand the «ore«M 
(prrnces) from among whom ^^til0 heads of piaees (aba ^anda) ace 
chosen , while the other mighty^ men ^ of 4be tribe are only a6« ktfd\ 
a condiition whioh answers that of oar noble lords of manors or landed 
proprietors. 
. Their religion is a monotheism obsonredi by many superstiiions. 
The Qailas adore a snpreme being, Wael (js^XnMy heaven), who ii| 
aljBighty, omniscient, all-good^ all-vwise. In short, possessing all the 
qoslities which we Christians attrihnte to onr God. The worship eon* 
sists in prayers • and. saerlfices, (the adoration of a treo is most deciT 
dedly impugned by my brother,) and penetrates deep into all the 
oironmstances of lifb. If thls.natpral religion has not been broaght 
itito some system, whioh is very probable, it is evident from these 
communications, that the moral views ooaneoted with It, exereise a 
very beaeflcial and proband eifect on the manner of thinking and 
acting of its confessors , — a circumstance which might lead vs to 
•appose, that we shonld #nd here a soil, well fitted Ibr the reception 
and propagation of christian dootrinOs. 

Of the manners and customs I will -but mention a fbw Polj^amy 
is permitted, and very flrequent. The nuinber of wives is according 
t0 the property of the man. In: this respeet the Miig enjoys the pri-i 
Yilege of taking, besides his lawftal wives C^^^ia), girls out df any 
floDilies, and without asking permission, making them his eonenbines 
{zadjeda)^ which they have no objection to, it bciing considered a 
great honoar. If a c(Hnnion man .wish to marry, (which every youth 
does as soon as he is arrived at the age of puberty '^>, he goes to 
the Aither of the girl be has chosen, and demands her, at the saraie 
time informing him how much property he has (in oisen, horses^ sheep 



-u 



^) Akafed'e was much surprised at seeing so many grown op 
men in fiarope, who would not marry; he would have .taken 
a wife, he said, had he remained at home, fbr it is so pleasant 
to have a son to inherit the love^ and after their death the 
property of the parents. 



ete. If there are many wooers, that one t$ktB her bonne , to whom 
the girl gives a gold ring. On a certain day in presence of the 
relations and Mends of both parties the marriage is tlMn eoncluded 
according to law, with prayers and religleiis oeremonies. The woman 
reoeires her portion alter her ^rst son is born; if she benrs a daagh- 
ter she receives nothing or little, and this oiremnstanee generally 
canses separation. As the female sex holds a very Inferior nmk, this 
has no difficulty, and if the husband pleases, he can drive her out 
of his honse, for other causes 'than that above-mentioned. In such 
eases, or if even the woman herself desires the separation, or mns 
away, the proposition; Fartns seqoitnr ventrem, is not valid ^ bat the 
husband keeps the children^ for it would be eonsidered a <orime for 
him to desert them. -^ Hospitality and respect for age are virtues 
generally practised. •*— Smoking is very common among the OallaS) 
particularly among the soldiers (which they are all actnally)i It seems 
that they mix intoxicating herbs -with their tobacco, for Aknfed^e re-' 
lates of very strong smokers having sometimes died in a tew days 
with violent coughing. — The beard is shorn of the common people, 
but by the princes and priests it is worn long. -^ Inviolability of oaths. 
^ Auspices and Sooth-^aying. ^«— Games, Dances, accompanied by 
metrical and rhymed songs etc. etc. 

Trade is confined to barter, in. which the usual conventional coins 
used are pieces of rock-salt Cameie) and its particles. 

. What will be of great advantage in our intercourse with this 
people, is the Galla tribes all having the same luaguage, excepting a 
few dialectical variations and a greater or less intermixture of foreign words. 

Whether the Gallas have a method of writing and What method 
It Is has not been decided to a certainty; for. the letter supposed to 
be written in Galla-eharaeters, which Mr. d' Abba die sent to Pliris, 
Is not deciphered ; yet this document causes us to presume the ex* 
istence of a mode of writing. If one is extant it must be composed 
of entirely peculiar letters or syllables, as no alphabet or syllabariom 
can express, with exiactness, all the sounds met with In. the Galla«- 
Language.^) My brother was, therefore, frequently obliged to have 



*") What Mr. Krapf says on this subject in his Imperfect outline, 
namely, „that no sound is found in the 6aIl*«>Language that 
cannot be expressed with English letters, even bcftter than with 
Ethiopian^^, is very doubtful.

our lettera, endeavour to point oot the peculiar character of the diiferent 

Galla sounds. Tlie number of letteta adoptid by him at the last reviaal 

of his Dictionary amounts to; 80; but, in the later investigations of this 

language, it will not stop here, for many sounds became evident

ReniMrlu on the Alphabet* 

I. Vowels. 

a'ammdB everywhere like the elearEogliih » in ^^flitiier.'^ II can 
he.lem]^ or short. Leiig either by BatQre or from the eontractioii of 

aoy for example: bd'y I go oat, contracted from bdkif 

aivoy e. £. iaka^ I count, contr. from lakawd; 

aya^ e. g, tAy I sit, contracted from taya. 

At the end of words ills very > often almost quite, mute or ajirten 
so short that k seems to be only a brealb and aimittg at, pB it were, 
the sound which it denotes, as in the Tumale language. I have mwrked this 
vowelhy writing it over the line in ! this manner: W0ft^ heaven; atogiCj 
salt. When the word takos an addition from deoLeasion, coiOogation 
or contraelion, th^ full sound ayipears again, whieh proves ^katxit be» 
comes mule only Jrom haste in speaking. The same is the case with 
all other vowels, wherefore I would have it remarked here direetly. 
Examples are: Akafed'l, a name; tordanl^ seven, tokl^ one, Sib^y the 
name a Galla-country. . - * • 

e has two different sounds; 1. like a in Me; for exMBtpkezheka, 
I know'yjezay thou sittost^ -^^ 9. einiraet, or like the j&erman \ae in: 
,i,8aege, V&ter.'^ I have marked it thus: mehay how much? — refa, 
fi dead. body.' 

i sounds like i An pin; o like o.in no.; u like op. All these vow- 
els are likewise either long or short. 

II; Diphthong* s. 

The Galla is devoid of real diphthongs, that is to say, of such which 
already he in the roots .of the words tbems^elves, the particle ^^^au^^^ 
„no'', must be tlie only exception, but even this word would perhaps 
he spelt better with ^ than with t^. AH the other combinations 
Of vowels are merely formed by declension or conjugation. In the 
examples: hm (Imperative • mood of ba»\ go out}; tau^ to sit;' Mnii" 
boiUy do not weep; himbmn, do not flftll etc. the i and u are always 
characteristic of ji, certain ipopd or tense ^ but,ney§,r an. element. of a 
natural diphthong. . * 



— 3«V — 

III. C n fl n A II t lu 

k is always the hard palatial sornid as In key, kill. 
c (befbre e and ij — q") U a softer sound prodaced by pres- 
smg the tongue against the middle of the palate kn^ pushing or Bmack- 
ing with It, but Without an aspiration, whilst the' afore -said sound 
proceeds with a certain aspiration deeper from the hlndpart of the mouth. 
This sound requires great accufaey, because by its being confounded 
wift k or ffy mistakes are uniivoldable; thus caca is soot; paffa wax; 
kaka the root of kakad^a^ I swear, take an oath. 

g hat every -where the hard sound of the English g in go, gain, 
nor is it ever melted with n to that nasal sound ng^ so firequent in 
the European languages. The latter sound is entirely wanting in 
(villa and wherever ng occours the two consonants must be spoken 
separately, for example: dan^gay not danga^ nourishment. Before m 
9 appears assimilated to it in (he dialect of Sibu ; viz. Aga said in- 
stead of dogma -r- dammoy honey. 

ch is. employed only ia a few cases as a euphonical softening of 
k before n and t in the flexion of verbs, for example: ani beka^ I 
know; dti bechta^ thou knowest; nu bechna^ we know; its pronun- 
ciation, is then the same, with that of the German ch in „dich, mich^^ 

The tbr^e sounda tehy dj^ dy which from their nature lie between 
their- and T-sounds, have been adapted to the English pronunciation ; 
kh being tl^e h^rah ieiind tph in „fetph"; 4/ as if it were dsh, but 
softer; and dy still softer than this. But besides these three letters I 
have availed myself also of d^' and di'z^ in order to preserve^ the root 
in verbal fornifit, because by changing them into tch or dj it, would 
often become impossiUe to distinguish the latter, for example : the III. 
form ot.d^^d'a^ eat, (said of cattle), I have written d^Hd^»iaia{l feed), not 
ietchi%a or d^^djisiaj on purpose to show, ,4hat the final consonant of 
the root is d\ not ty d nor r^ which la of importance to be known 
in the coiUpgation* . 

t, Vj dp tt.^A Bight and accurale prenuneiation and writing of 
the T-sounds, offer greater difficulties than all the other letters |n Galla 
and the utmost precaution ought to be obf«effve4 not to C4)nfound them 
with each other, because almost always the disttngnishing of the words 
depends on it. I never in any other language found soah an exact 
and sharp distinction in this clasa of . coasanants , evea when spoken 
as swiftly as possible , as in the mouth of the. Gallas. And that is 



— XJLVi — 

the reason, why in Ihe InflectioD ef vefbs^ when another i Is joined 
to a root ending • with a T-sound, and an aasimilatipn of both seems 
to be natural or even reqaisite^ both are exhibited,, in order to. make 
the root discernible, in this maihier: ^ 

fidtUj thoa bringest, fVem am fida; had^Ujt^ thoa eat^pt, Arom am 
na^a; fUTtay thoa endest from am fWa, 
The single T-sonnds are as follows : 
13 tf our hard and the German aspirated t and th as in ,^T^ne, 

Thau." 
9) fy a T-soand peculiar to this language and a very bard one, 
in pronouncing which the tongue presses itself closely against 
the upper fore-teeth, so that after the r almost a soft s 
becomes audible, and the z that is wanting seems to be supplied. 
Examples: fufa, I smoke; fife^ blue. Perhaps (T has its ana- 
logy in the Amharic classe of fetters represented by the ifmt, 
Tsh'ail and Ts'adai. 

Befbre n the three T-sounds d^ t and tt are aasimilated 
without causing a doubling of the n, the T howewer rests 
unchanged; for example: /Wa, I take, plur. funay we take, 
but fifO) I finish, plur. fiiTnay we finish. 

* • « 

9) d is our soft d in day, load, maid; for exairipli^, difia, enemy; 

ed^y because. ^ 

4} df, a singular sound, scarcely to be expressed with our organs. 
It is very soft and formed by a mild push of the tongue firom 
the hindpart of the palate , so that between the if^ and the 
following vowel another consonant seems . to be intercalated, 
similar to the Semitic Ayin. It forms thus to a certain degree 
the bridge ft*om the (T-sounds to the gtiitturals and before the 
ear is well accustomed to this particular idiom, it Is usually 
confounded with ^, Examples are: d^ii/b, I come ; mittany grain. 

Of how great importance the precise distinction between the 
beA)re mentioned l^oonds is, may be seen in the following 
words 

d^uta, 9. pers. pros, of dua^ I die, 

duda* adj. deaf, 

d'udCa, V. 1 devour, 

tuta, subst. crowd, multitude, 

ritra. V. I smoke, '

flTtt^lied by e right iireeunoietio* ef tbe reafieotive. T-eeands. 
f has elwayn the sharp sound of f in fat, fall) a softer sound for 
this oonsonaat heing wanting. 

6 in the hegkwing' ef words like oor b in bind, bow^ in |he 
ttiddie, partieolariy before Ybwels almost like y, for examples d^abe^ 
he did mot find, spells d^aee^ Beibre n it sounds, almoal like si; Ex^ 
tchabmani (partic. pret. of tehabOy I break) spell Uha0miani. Bat here 
also a real assimilatioa of A with the related liquid 'i» might be 
supposed. 

y sounds as in EngUsh In the begianiag as well as in the middle 
of words, but beinga- obnseaant it never forms a diphthong^ whieb 
nay seen parfiouAarly in. the primitive form ol the verbs, which 1 le^ 
irard aa representing' the 9*^ oenjugatlon, and sUU more In their II* 
form of roots I as My eooiracted. ftom toya^ II. U kajfa^a; where 
the y. must be regarded not as formiag the diphtong ay with the vowel 
a, bat begliinkng the next syllable, in thia manner: koryay — kih^'d^m^ 
^w must be pronounced in the beginning and .In the middle of 
words like the eoglish w, so -that almost a diphthoag seesM to be 
heard; for rmwmtay I flniah^ sounds almost UkermMMii^a. 
r like our r. 

/ has its usual sound $ when it stands befye n, the n is assimi- 
lated with it and the / appears doubled, f. e. f'/als, I see; 1. pers. 
plor. presw UaUay instead of iMndy we see; 
01 is the same as in other languages. 

n likewise. Before l, m, n/ r It is aQsimilated and fbrhis //, mmy 
nn, rr. Before b it is changed into m and •before w It disappears 
qalte. Respecting n, marked thus: it, the negative n, as I call it, 
see this letter in the Dictionary pag. 176. 

n is a sound whieh occupies tongue, nose and palate at once 
and so singularly that i could by no means hit the right pronunciation; 
it is similar to the Italian gn inlegno or to the l^panish nf, but without 
any admixture of i, which is more or less the case in those sounds. 
Whether it has any aeulHi analogous in the Amharic Onahas or not, 
I do net know; 1 doubt it however, because — as it is by Ludolf 
simply expressed with the Italian gn ~ the pronunciation of Onahas 
ooght (0 be much easier than this sound, so apposed to our organ. 
% marfcs the soft 
f the shatfp a.

% f^t % ^ I have remarked above expreisea the English ah. 

h is foooil only in the heginniag of worda and iti the simple as* 
l^rafion as in our languages* 

-^ the same consonant as the Semitic Ayin, whereftire I ^ave 
ehosett its character. It occurs in the middle and at ^e end of 
words and causes in th|9 first case a singular disjunotion of the word 
by a certain kind df. pause as in har^a^ to-day; In the other m breath- 
less shortness of the last vowel as in.^iS^, deepv ree^, goat. 

The indisputable propensity of the Galla«*laBgnage to vowels, 
which is so great that not one word ends with a consonant — then, 
that no word begins with two consonants and that, wherever by in- 
llec^oa in declension or conjugation, three consonants would meet to- 
gether, the existing hardness is avoided by intercalating a towcI or 
^s^cing'the consonants themselves; finally that the harder consonants 
tj ^j ky teh etc. are proportionally rare, while the softer ones dy tPj 
djy dy g etc. preponderate, make^e language, parttcularly in'Ihe mootb 
of a native Galla, very soft, and especially qualifies it for TsrsUlcatioo. 
This property also appears to be the reason why, although the Galla 
poetry be otherwise so poor, rhyme is nevertheless so cultivated that 
rhymes in the middle as well as at the ends of lines freqnently occur. 

Cormal remarks* 

All verbs are mentioned in the VI Pers. 8ing» Pros... and the signi- 
fication is added in the Infinitive for. the sake of brevity* 

The numbers 1, 9, 3 standing after the Qalla verb, denote the 
cKmjugation according to which it is to be inflected, which is deter- 
mined hy the i^ Pers. Siing. Pres. ; thus, for ea^mpie, 1!^ Coiu* adfima,

Indem ich das Galla^Lexicon hieimt der Oeffentlichkeit uher* 
gebe, trage ich eine heilige Schuld an dem Yerfasser desselben^ 
meinen theuren, onvergesslichen Brader Karl ab. Es verdankt 
sein Entstehen einer dreijahrigen angestrengten Thatigkeit, 
welche aber leider durch deq viel zu fruhen Tod meines Bruders 
gerade zu einer Zeit gebrochen wurde, wo sich ihm neuer, lang 
ersehnter Wirkungskreis eroffnet und eine Zokunft vorbereitet 
hatte^ die bei sein^n vortrefflichen Aniagen and seiner geistigen 
Energie mit Recht als eine wissenschaftlich tbatenreiche voraus- 
gesetzt w^erden durfte. So kur;^ jedoch aach die Zeit war, die 
der Himmel seinem Streben gegonnt, imd obwohl das von ihm 
Begoonene nur zum kleinaten Theile zor Vollendung gedieh, 
so werden immelrhin' die ResuHate seiner 8tudien anf deni Felde 
•fricanischer Lingaistik, Oeographie and Ethnographie als with- 
tige Beitrage zur naheren Kenntniss jenes noch mit so vielsei- 
tigem Dankel bedeckten Welttheils betrachtet werden miissen 
und sich wiirdig an das durch Reisen in die entsprechenden 
Lander Gewonnene anreihen.

teressant sein mag, den Weg kennen zu lernen, aaf welchem 
feme von Africa, inmitten Deutschlands das Studium africanischer 
Zustande und Sprachen mit so schoneoiErfoIge gepflegt wurde, 
so werde ich in Folgendem kurz den Bildungsg^ang meines 
Brnders darzustellen nnd damit zugleich den Zweck, eine bio- 
graphische Skizze zu geben, zii erreichen sachen.^) 

Sfein Bruder, Karl Tutsehek, war geboren za Bayreutii 
am 13. Janaar 1815 und hatte sich, nachdem er das dortige Gym- 
nasium absolvirt, dem «Studium der Philologie bestimmt. . Gewisse 
Rncksichten nothigten ibn spater, diesem Lieblingsfaeh zu ent- 
sagen und sich der Jurispriidenz zuzuwenden, wahreqd deren 
Betreibung er jedoeh scbon damals, wie im Yorgefuhl seiner 
kiinftigen Bestimmung, nicht nur dielebenden fremden Sprachen, 
sonderh auch SiKnscrit, Hebriiisch und Arabisch mit vieler Liebe 
stndierte. 



^) Dem Inhalte des Buches und, wie ich mich rqcht zu eriDoern 
glaube, auch der urspriingUehen Absicht seines Verfassers ge- 
mass soUte demselben eine ausffihriiche Abhandlung tiber die 
Galla, historiscb, geographisch und ethnographisch beigegebeo 
werden; allein diese wurde leider nur begonnen, und was 
ich in dieser Beziehung geben kann sind nur Andeutungen; 
denn nicht urspriingliche Wahl sondem traurige Nothwendig- 
keit hat jnich auf die von meinem Brudw h<etretene Bahn g&- 
f&hrt und mir die Pflicht anferlegt, das von ihm GefSrderte so 
viel mfiglich der Wissenschaft zinsbar zu machen. I«h glaube 
jedoeh die Hoffnung aussprechen zu diirfen, dass ich, wens 
sich giinstige Umst&nde vereinigen, in entschiedenerer nod au$- 
schliesslicherer Weise in die Fussstapfen meines Brnders ein^ 
treten werde, als diess bis jetzt der Fall sein konnte, und dass 
besonders dann, wenn ich nach geh({rigen Vorstudien mit einezn 
noch lebenden Gaila-^Referenten meines Bruders in VernefameD 
treten kann, manches Unvolkndete VoUendet und so fOr die 
Wissenschaft gerettet wird, was fOr Jetzt als unbearbeiteter 
Stoff nntzlos und brach vor mir liegt

Ate er im Jahre 1887 nach Miiochen g^ekommen war, um 
seine akademische Laufbahn als Jurist za beendigen, wurde er zum 
Lehrer dea Prinzen Louis in Bayern berafen and nach der 
Ruckkehr 8r. Hoheit des Herzogs Maximilian in Bayern von 
seiner Reise in den Orient mit der Erziehung der von demselben 
aas der 8elaverei losgekauften nnd mit nach Mi^nchen gebrachten 
vier Schwarzen betraut. Er ubemahm das selt^ne Amt vol! 
Besergniss fur die neue Stdning seiner Studien auf der einen, 
md wegen eines aus vielen Grunden moglichen Misslingens des 
Unternehmens auf der andereri Seite. Doch zog ihn die Neu- 
heitder Sache an, nnd die wissensehaftliche Neugierde, ob er 
flielit Interessantes iiber die Heimath und fruheren Verhaltnisse 
'er Fremden erfahren und so vielleicht etwas zur n&heren Kennt- 
niss von Afrika b^itragen kdnne, Hess ihn muthig das Werk 
am 18. Nov. 1838 beginnen. 

Es ist leicht begreiflich, welche Schwierigkeiten der erste 
Anfang eines Unterrichtes gehabt habe, wo das dem Lehrer 
sonst zur Einwirkung auf die Schuler vor allem nothige Mittel 
des gegenseitigen Yerstiindnisses abging, urn so mehr, wenn 
man bedeiikt, dass den ersten dessfallsigen Bemiihungen fast 
uniibersteigliche Hindernisse in dem bekannten alien Africanem 
theils angebornen theila durch die Yerhaltnisse aufgedrungenen 
Misstrauen gegenWeisse entgegentraten ; dazu kam noch, dass 
die Knaben nicht begreifen konnten, was man mit ihnen yorhabe, 
und so gingen denn mehrere miihselige Monate hin, wahrend 
welcher mein Bruder tiiglich viele Stunden verhohnt und ver- 
Iftcht, bttcbst£blich mit Handen und Fussen docirte. 

Endlieh gegen Ende Januar 1839 gewann er durch einen 
glficklich benutzten Umstand — durch liebevolle Pflege eines 
seiner ZSglinge in einer unbedeutenden Krankheit — den ersten 
^ wichtigsten Sieg, das Vertrauen desselken nnd wie bei ihm, 
^ sah er bald auch bei den ubrigen den hartnfickigen Argwohn 
in Zutranlichkeit und innige kindliche Neigung iibergehen. Ton 
diesem Augenblicke datiren sich die ersten fragmentarischen 
^Achrichten aus dem Leben eines jeden Einzelnen und es zeigte 

8# 



8ich vor Allem, dass, wahrend der Herzog ihm drei Nabier 
und einen Abyssinier znr Erziehong nbergeben zo haben 
meinte , er statt dessen die Reprasentanten Ton vier verschie- 
denen Yolkern, einen Oalloy einen Umalej einen Darfiirianer and 
einen Denka vor sich hatte, die aos ilirer Heimath gentohlen und 
durch den Sclavenhandel an den Nil verkaaft, nur dnrch das 
Bediirfniss g^egenseitiger Verst&ndigang gezwungen waren, sehr 
nothdurftig den arabischen Yulgardialact radebreehen zu lernen, 
selbst aber vier von einander ganz venschiedene , weder unter 
sich noch mit den bekannten afrioanischen , namentUeh mit den 
semitischen verwandte 8prachen als Muttersprachen reden; fer- 
ner, d&ss d^ei von ihnen bei der Erwerbung durch den Herzog 
nicht I&nger als ein Jahr von ihrer Heimath entfemt waren and 
bei eiiiem hinreichenden Alter und vortrefflicli^n Aniagen nicU 
nur linguistische Mittheilungen , sondem auch Urdieile iiber die 
Verhaltnfsse ihrer Heimath in Aussicht steliten, die den Berichten 
un^ierer bisherigen Reisenden in diesen Landern an die Seite 
treten, ja aus mehreren Griinden sogar sioherere Aufschlusse 
geben konnten. 

Die ersten immerhin noch mit sehr grossen Schwierigkeiten 
erlaogten Resultate der nun begonnenen Forschungen beschrank- 
ten sich auf Bestatigung der in den Reisebeschreibungen von 
Ludolf, Brown, Salt, Seetzen, Burckhart, Riippell 
und Bruce enthaltenen Angaben, Bereichening der dort ver- 
zeichneten Vocabularien und in der Fixirung verwandtschaftlicher 
Yerhaltnisse der einzelnen Referenten ; auch fallen schon in jene 
Zeit die ersten Kartenentwtirfe und Mittheilungen interessanter 
Gebete und Lieder, wie sie das Gedachtniss und der Jedoch 
nicht ohne Ruckfalle in das alte Misstrauen und in tagelange 
Yerschlossenheit gebUebene gate Wille wiedergeben mochten. 
Es'gehorte grosse ¥o9sicht dazu, hier sicher zu gehen, denn 
die geringste Yeranlassnng brachte bisweilen die Yersichemng 
zu Wege, ,,dass Alles bisher Zugestandetfe nur erdichtet sei ^^ 
,^das»«sie eigentlieh aus ihrem Lande gar nichts wiissten,' weil 
,,sie als ganz kleine Kinder weggekommen sei^n^^. Solche Ruck*

fille worden Jedoeh iamier seltQoer und konnten, nachdem Yer*- 
gleichon^en und Wiederholungeii die friiheren Angaben vor<> 
sichtig als richtig gepruft hatten, nicht mehr von langer Dauer

mit oAs^ren Lebensverbfiltnlssen und ihrer Fortechritte in den 
iiire Wissbegierden fesselnden Unterrichtsgegenst&nden taglicb

Der btsfaer elngeschlagene Weg von Yocabularien - Saiojn* 
long wurde jedoeh bald verlassen^ und zwar be8oiiders in Folge 
Aer Aufmunterung und der Rathschlage, die mein fifuder von 
Prof. Karl Ritter in Berlin erhielt Meinfiruder halte nemlich 
diesem in Africanischen Dingen mit Recht al.< erste Authorit^t 
verehrten Oelehiien ^er den Gang seiner Studien geschrieben 
nnd hatte die Freude^ als Beweis der Theilnabme, welche m* 
bd ihm erregt, einen Vortrag zugeschickt zu erhalten, welBhen 
Herr Prof. Ritter in der Monatssitzung der geographtschen 
Gesellsehaft vom Mai 1839 uber jene magere Mittheilung ge- 
halten hatte. Yon dieser Zeit an riehtete mein Broder alle seine 
Kraft darauf, mit seinen Zogltngen, wenn auchnoch innerhalb 
^es beschriinkten Horizonts, immerwidirende UnterhaltunK uber 
alle Yerhaltnisse ihrer Linder zu pflegen; und wahrend dieses 
seiner von Tag zu Tag gesteigerten . Begeisterung gelang, 
Budite er das ohaehin vorhandene Heimweh so zu nahren und 
zu veredeln, dass die Ueberzeugung in ihnen reeht lebhaft wurde, 
treue Mittheilungen an ihn, verbunden mit dem^ was sie'ans 
^iner Hand ampfingen, seien die sicherste Oewahr, nicht nur 
ihre 8ehnsa<At nach dem Yaterlande einst stiilen zu konnen, 
sondern a«dh fflr die Erreichung des weit edleren Zieles — aus 
der Fremde, in die si£ ein hartos Geschick gestossen, zum Hell 
^d Segen ihres Yatedandes zu wirksli>und so den Beraf zu 
crfttUen, den ihnen eine hdhere Hand auferlegt.

dankte mein Binder jeoe zahlreichen, kdehst mteressaQten Auf- 
satze, welche ihin sp&ter neben der perednlichen Unterfaaltasg 
mit den Referenten selbst als Qaellen und Fandgruben seiner 
lingnistischen , geographischen nnd ethnographischen Studien 
dienten, und, da sie theilweise mit wahrer Gediegeoheit ond 
Rundnng sowohl in Bezug auf Styl als anf Inhalt and Anord* 
nong desselben abgefasst sind, eine Art Literatur der entspre- 
chenden Yolker zu reprasentiren Anspruch madien durfen. Wie 
diess bei der Jugend der Referenten moglieh aei, erweisst sicb 
aus der Betrachtung, dass die Erzahlungsgabe nberhaupt ein 
Pratlicat aller orientalischen Volker ist, und dass besonders jene 
Kinder der Natur von den friihesten Leben^^jahren an mit alien 
Verhaltnissen ihrer Eltern, Darfbewohner and Volksstamme bis 
aafs kleinste vertraut werden und desshalb bej»d.er andvilisirten 
Volkern durchweg eigenthtimliehen Scharfe der Beobachtung 
schon sehr frtihzeitig zu einer klaren Anschauungsweise and 
Beurtheilung derselben gelangen. 

Wie sich nun die auf splche Weise begonnene Ausbente 
von Tag zu Tag mehrie, trat das Bedtirfniss auf, der Bew-bei^ 
tung des Einen oder Anderen eine ansschUessIiebere Thatigkeit 
zuzuwenden. Die Heimath nnd Spraehe des OaUa^ Akafed'e

der Boranna Galla) der leider sein Yaterland nicht wiedersefaen 
soIUe, sondern seit dem 17. Mai 1841 in deutscher Erde sdilaft, 
lenkte zuerst meines Bruders Aufmerksamkeit auf siefa. Jenes 
Volk, das in zablreiche StJlnune getheilt, sett der Mitte des 16« 
Jahrhunderts. durch seine unauf horlichen EinfUle und sein DrSngen 
gcgen Nof den sich den Abyssiniern so furehtbar and geschicht- 
iieh merkwurdig gemacht hat, war durch den talentvollen Aka- 
fed'e auf das Trefflichste reprasentirt, and mein Brnder war, 
abgesehen von den frtAltischen Riicksichten, die hier ein be«- 
deutendes Gewicht in die Wagschale legten, vorzdglich aach 
durch die Einfaehheit, den Wohlklang and. die nach kurzen 
Studien schon klar erkannte grammatische Dnrchbildung der 
Galla-Sprache aufs Entschiedenste angezogen. Er wandte daher,

t Janaar 1841 las er eine DarsteUnag iibei? Beginn und • Fort- 
gang seiner Forsehongen nnd einen Abris9 der Grammatik der 
Oalla-Spradie; zugleich legte er der Klasse ein ziendioii voli^ 
skiiDdifres JLexicon derselben und mekrere spraclilich und sachlich 
counentirte Dictate, Gebete, Lieder eta vor. Eine ihm kurz 
vorher zugekommene Abbandlong iibar die ChUa von UmiK (Ex- 
trait da buHetin de la soeiete geographique, Aout 1839), welcke 
Herr Bibliothekar Jomard in der Akademie zn Paris gelesen 
liatte, war der erste acbriftliche Beweis Air die Richtigkeit sei- 
ner eigenen Besultate, denn er fand darin nur bekannte Sacken^ 
sowobl im geographischen Theile als auch in dea weaigen dort 
mitgetheilten Sprachprobes, wo namentllGh die Gebete dieselben 
^d, wie er sie von seinem Akafed'e niedergeschrieben, nur 
mit einer andem Ortbographie und einer durch sie bedingten 
versehiedenen UebersetsHing. Was dort uber Sitten und Ge- 
briiuebe gesagi ist, stimmt mit wenigen Ausnahmen nit seinen 
Wahmebmungen uberein. Viel wicbtiger als diess, war aber 
der spreebende Beweiss, den ibm um dieselbe Zdt das Gliick

aaf die Mittheilangen Amans, obwohl er der jungste von alien

so gross immer die Schwierigketten sind^ welche sidi der El^

so lobnend wird dagegen die leiuealisclie nnd grammatikaliscke 
Bearbeitong derselben for die Sprachforscbong im Allgemeinen 
sein und so gross sind anch die Sehitse, welche dnrch die Kennt- 
niss derselben erschlossen werden konnen. Von Djalo's Dio-

heit nach Form and Inhalt gesagt wmrde; und eslftuss hier dem 
Obigen nodi beigefiigt werden, dass denselben uberall das Ge-

gedrnckt ist, eine Vereinigungyon Yorzugen, die sie gewiss einst, 
wenn sie gesiditet und commentirt der Oeffentliehkeit ubergeben 
werden konnen, als wesentliche Bereieherung der Wissensdiaft er- 
seheinen lassen wird. Aus dieser gewiss nicht ubertriebenen 8chil- 
derung geht hervor, dass die Begeistemng fur diese interessanten 
Stndien als ein Erbtheil von meinem Bruder auf mich uberge- 
gangen ist, und idi nehme hier Gelegenheit 2u erwiihnen, dass 



*) Ich habe drei Btode davoti in Hauden, in welehea alle nor 
doDklichen VerhUtnisse Jenes interessaiiten Volkes, thells IWig- 
mentarisch, theils In gr^ltiiserer AaslHirltohkeit abgehandelt sind. 
' Die Mittheilungen sclieiden sich in fidlche, die Djalo als Re- 
prodactionen aus seinem eminenten Gedftchtnisse gegebea und 
in solehe, die als freie AuiMUae, als eifene Vroduote des Re* 
ferenten sich darstellen. 



ich fest entocUossen bin, so weit e« meinen schwachen KrUften 
fplingtn ma^, aach hier den von meinem Bruder eingeschlagenen 
We^: za verfolgen, and theilweise wenigstens abzozahlen, was 
er der Wissenachaft scholdig hleiben musste. Der Anfang dazu 
ist gemacht, denn Djalo lebt in Munchen und unterstiitzt von 
seinern eigenen rej:en Streben, mitzawirken an dem schdnen 
Werke, bin ich bereita durch t&gliehe Conferenzen mit ihm in 
den Vorbof dea zu erforschenden ^osaen Geb&udes eingefuhrt; 
oh ich zu einem befriedigenden Ziele l^elange, wkd die n&chste 
Zttkanft lehren. 

Der dritte Zoglinif: meines Bruders ist Mussalam Mo te- 
le otn ana Meihem in Darfur etwa 7 Tagreisen siidlich von Kohbe^ 
kt Haaptstadt des Landes. Auch seine Mittbeilnngen sind von 
nicht anbetrlichttichem Werthe und seine Dictate verdienen eine 
liearbeitanf redit wohl; denn wenn dieselben ianch in Styl und 
Inhalt nehr den Ausdrack der Kindlichkeit an sich tragen, und 
die ErinneruDgen Mussalams iiberhaupt nicht so umfassend 
»i sein scheinen ^ wie Jene der bis jetzt genannten Referenten 
aeines Arad^rs, so wivd doch inunerhin die Wiederaiifnahme 
der Forsehungen fiber seine heimathlichen Verbiltnisse and seine 
Bprache Jetzt, wo er reifer geworden, aasser zahlreichen ethno- 
Si'^phischen and geographischen Notizen aiich die Hecstellung 
eines sehr reicben Wdrterbuehs und ernes Abrisses der Oram- 
Biatik seiner ' Sprache mAglich machen. Mussalam spricht sie 
ietet noch gelKoflg, und es bietet dieselbe, soweit mir meine ge« 
nnge Eiosicht in ihren Bau und Charakter ein Urtheil hierflber 
^lAubt, der Erlernung bei Weitem nicht jene Schwierigkeiten 
^) wie die dea Umale. 

Ueberden vierten Zogling endlich, A wan, will ich meinen 
^der selbst einige Worte reden lassen. In der oben erw&hnten 
^orlesnng in der Akademie aagte er unter Anderm : „bei diesem 
Knaben, dem jiingsten von Allen, er mag etwa 18 Jahre alt 
^1^9 habe ich eine psyehologisch merkwiirdige Erfahrung ge- 
ntfteht, die wohl worth ist, zum Gegenstand besonderen Nacb- 
Menkens erhoben zu werden* Wiilirend des ganzen Jahrea

nemlich , wo ich mit den drei ubrigen so firob Torwibrto trbei- 
tete, antwortete mir dieser immer tranrf^, er wisse nichts mehr 
von seiner Heimatfa, er sei zu klein gewesen, als er fortge-^ 
komraen. Im Anfange glaubte ich, das alte.Misstraaen sprachej 
ans ihm; well er aber in allem Uebrigen anfrichtig war, so 
nahm ich spiiter seine Anssage for wahr nnd liess ibn , da i& i 
anderen Quellen nm so reichlicher flossen, lange Zeit nnbeachtet 
Diese onwillkuhrliche Yernachlassigdng von neiner tSeiie , ver- 
bnnden mit dem nnter Knaben so gewohnlich vorkomnienden 
Muthwillen gegen 8chwachere, hatte aber fast scUimme Folgen 
gehabt. Der Knabe wurde still, mum'sdi — und endlich fand 
ich ihn viele Tage nacheinander weinend , ohne dass ieh im 
8tande gewesen ware, den Gnind avs &m heransznhringen. 
Unter vier Augen aber sagte er mir, dass er. Heimweh habe 
and sich nach seinen Yerwandten sehne; aach seien ihm die 
Namen seines Vaters, seiner Mutter, seines Braders und seio 
eigener eingefallen, aber „ich wiirde ihm J#ht glaaben^^. 
Ich versicherte nun mit innerer Rene uber mein faisAieriges Ver- 
fahren den Weinenden meines voUkommenen 2«tranens ; dami 
drang ich noch weiter in ihn, ob er gar kein Wort aas seiner 
Sprache behalten habe, and wirklieh fielen ihm nach.Iangem 
Nachdenken zwei ein; kur der Berg nnd kir der Flnss. Za' 
meiner grossen Freude fand ich die beiden Worter in Ruppels 
Vocabularien nnter der Anfschrift Dor Benki^ Nachdem ihin 
dmrch nnunterbrochenes Nachd^iken und stetes Zureden von 
meiner Seite in den folgenden Tjtgen sooh 6 bis 8 mit dem 
Rupperschen Vocabular iibereinstimmende Worter eingefalled 
waren, nannte ich ihm den Yolksnamen Denkawiy den er ait 
Frenden sogleich fur den seines Yolkes erkannte. Es war 
hieranf herrlich; das mehrerwahnte Yocabular mit ihm dareh- 
zagehen und die Wirkung der alten bekannten Laute auf den 
Knaben zu beobachten, riihrend auch die Freude seiner drei 
schwarzen Freunde, welche ich eine Yiertelstunde darauf, nach- 
dem ihnen die Neuigkeit bekannt geworden war^ weinend an 
iseinem Halse antraf, voll Freude, dass nua aach er ihnen 



gfleiehsam ebenbfirtig gewordeo durch das Wiederauffiaden 
seines ' Vaterlandes. Von jenem Au^enblick an begann anch 
bei ibm ein ganz anderes Leben. Durch angestren^s Nach- 
denken fiber seine Vergangenheit. kam er in den Stand, ein. 
jetzt bereits gegen 500 W&rter enthaltendes Vocabular zu*^ 
sammenzuschreiben , nod ich babe die Hoibttng noch nich t anfw 
gegeben, dass ibm endlicb auch noch Zusanunenhfingendes za« 
ruckkommen wird*^^ Letztere Hofflnung wurde nicht erfullt, 
denn die Ausbeute bUeb bei A wan auf Yocabulfurienvergros- 
serrnig besebr£nkt 

Man sieht aiis dem Yorhergehenden , dass die Aufgabet, 
weiche sichmein Bruder gestellt, eine grosse and vielgegliederte 
war nnd dass die Anerkennung, weiche der theilweisen LSsnng 
derselben mid seinem Streben iiberhaupt von Seite der Munchener 
gelehrten Welt wie von ausw&rtigen Grelebrten zu Tbeil wnrde^ 
mid stets nenermatbigend aiif ihn wirkte^ eine wohlverdiente 
war. Am w<||^Ithueudsten und forderlicbsten aber fiir das Ge- 
deihen seiner Arheiten, besonderszu derZeit, wo sich dasY^r* 
haltniss zu seinen Schulern gelost hatte ^ war die rege Theil- 
Didune, weiche die geographische Gesellschaft und die African 
civilisation society in London in wiederholten Schreiben aug* 
driickten and die durch die hilfreiche Hand des Yicepr&sidenten 
letzterer Gesellschaft des Sir Thomas Dyke Acland auch 
materiell fordernd auftrat Herr Acland liess nemlicb meinen 
Bruder nicht nur alle in der letzten Zeit «rschienenen auf seine 
Arbeiten bezuglichen Biicher zustellen, sondern sandte auch 
freiwillig Unterstutzungen , denen ailein mein Bruder es damals 
Ku danken hatte, dass seine Studien nicht eine hochst nachthei* 
lige Storung und Unterbrechung betraf. Ich muss diess urn so 
mehr bier offentUch dankend anerkennen, als Herr Acland 
diese Opfer rein aus wissenschaftlichem Interesse. Ytir die Sache 
brachte. Diese Theilnahme und die damit verbundene Aussicht 
<iuf eine einstmalige Yerwondung fur eine von England ans-^ 
gehende wissenschaftliche Mission oder. Expedition nach Africa^, 
^ndlich das Jnteresse, welches ein deutscher Fiirst an djesen 



— AVI -^ 

Stndien nahm, hielt lange Zeit seine wankend ^wordene Gesimd- 
heit anfrecht. Als nclknlich gegenw&rtiges Lexicon beendet war, 
wurde es Sr. Kfinigl. Hoheit demKronprinzen von Bayero 
vorgelegt und dabei von meinem Brader der Wnnsch ausgc- 
sprochen, seine Studien in £hnlicher Weise wie bisher in Egypten 
dorch LoskaoAing und wissenschafUiche Ansbeatnng von Schwar- 
zen fortsetzen zu konnen. Der Kronprinz, weleher jedenr ^¥ahr-> 
haft wissenschaftlichen Streben frendig die Hand bietet, war von 
der Gediiegenheit der Arbeit so nberrascht, dass er segleich anf 
den Vorschlag meines Bruders einging, KostenanschMge fdr eine 
solche Reise nach Egypten anfertigen liess nnd schon nach 3 
Wochen die Summe aussprach, welche einen zweijfthrigen Anf- 
enthalt in Cairo moglich machte. Leider war aber diese An- 
stellung nur gleichsam ein Blick in das gelobte Land, denn trotz 
den Bemiihangen der ersten Aerzte Mdnchens nnd trotz dem 
noch mit schweren Opfem erkanften Gebrancfae des Bades Ems 
sank seine korperliche Kraft immer mehr und er erlf^ endlich, vier 
Wochen nach seiner Heimkehr in die Vaterstadt im elterlichen 
Hanse der Krankheit, die seit einem Jahre ihn nntergraben hatte, 
am 6. September 1843. — So endete viel zn friih ein Leben, 
das sich das grosse Ziei gesteckt hatte, an der Civilisation von 
Africa, diesem schonen Problem nnseres Jahrhunderts, thatig 
mitzuarbeiten und so zur Verwirklickung der Idee , dass euro- 
pdische Bildung und Gesittung Gemeingut aller Yolker der Erde 
werden solle, sein Scherflein beizutragen. Obwohl er dahin- 
sterben njiusste, ehe es ihm gegonnt war, mit eigenem Munde 
der Welt zu erzahlen , was er getemt und gesehen auf seinen 
Wanderungen im Geiste und ihr zu beweisen, dass es wohl der 
Afuhe werth sei, sich fur jene Vdlker zu interessiren , so geht 
doch aus dem hinterlassenen geschriebenen Worte genugsam 
hervor, dass das harte Urtheil , mit welehem noch so vielseitig 
moralische und geistige Zustande aller central-africanischen Volker 
belastet sind, lind das so Viele abhfilt, denselben ihr WohlwoUen 
und mit ihm ihre Thatigkeit zuzuwenden, eine Milderung ver- 
diene, welche herbeizufuhren ein zweiter heiliger Zweck meines 



— xLva — 

Bnidcrs war. Die liittel dfsu warra in den unbefangenen W^ 

theilDDgen seiner Zoglinge hinreichend gegeben, welche gewiss 

mit Recht von ihm f3r glaubwdrdige Autoritiiten gehalten und 

len afrtcanisGhen Reisenden bestitigend oder berichtigend an 

die Seite gestellt wnrden. Mochte sein Wunsch und Ideal, dass 

der bis jetzt noeh so selten betretene, fast ' ausschliesslicb nor 

von den Engl&ndern verfolgte Weg, dureh Africaner auf 

Africa zu wirken, zu allgemeinerer Geltung gelangen solle^ 

inErfuIlunggehen; mochte auch bei unsDeutschen seinjBeispiel 

Nachahmang finden und der Anfang, den er geroacht, nicht 

Anfang bleiben, sondern den Ausgangspunct, das erste Glied 

eioerKette von Jlhnlichen Bestrebnngen bilden, durch deren Zu- 

^nmenwirken wir uns betheiligen an dem Rohm, den Englands 

bewunderungswnrdiges Wirken in Afiica in so grosser Aus-

Zum Gebraacho g^getiwHrtlgeii Lexicons und zur Orientirung in 
den geograpliischen pnd etbnogrtphiscben VerhliUnissen des Volkcs, 
lessen Sprache hier theilweise repriisentirt ist, m((gen folgende kurze 
Bemeriningen dieoen. 

Die Galla, welche wie bemerkt in zablreichen St&mmen^) den 
fi&den von Abyssinien umwohnen, haben nacb meines Bruders Untejp- 
suchungen ihren Namen am wahrscbeinlichsten tras ibrer eigenen 
Sprache and nicht wie die meisten Antoren (Tellez, Ludolf und 
^le sp&teren mit Ansnablbe yon Bruce) annebmen, von den ^byssi- 
"icrn erbalten. Derselbe leitet sicb nacb seiner Ansicbt von dem 
Zcitwort gala^ heimgeben, seine Heimatb sucben, ber und ist in Ver- 
Hodong zu sefzen mit der gescbicbtlicb begHindeten Tbatsacbe, dass 
die Galla um 1785 dui-cb was immer fiir Ursacben aus ibrer Driiberen 



^ Krapf (Journals of tbe Rev, Mess. Isenberg and Erapf etc. 
Lond. 1848 und An imperfect outline of tbe elements of tbe 
Galla -Language by tbe Rev. L L. Krapf Lond. 1840) fcvont 
deren mebr als 60 bei Namen. 



Beimath veTtrieben, sicdiy urn eloe neme en saokeii, in saklrekhei 
Strdmen nach Abyssinien ergoaien und dieses Land £a ibcer neuei 
Heimath gemacht , haben — eine AMicht fttr die ausser anderen GriiD- 
den auch der Umstand spricht, dass die Galla sich selbst mit diesem Xameo 
benennen. Dieser . grosse Viilker-Complex, dessen Ausdehnnng gegeo 
Central-Aft-ica bis jetzt unbekannt ist, mag frtther ein nomadiscbe^ 
Hirtenleben gefiihrt haben, was aber jetzt nicht mehr der Fall ist. 
Die Galla leben in den meinem Bnider n&her bekannt gewordeoeo 
Districten in D5rfern, die freilich, weil sie ans einzelnen oft mit sehi 
grossen Grundstiieken nmgebenen Gehttften bestefaen, zaoi Theil seht 
-vreitlliufig sein mOgen, Anf dem Karten-Entwaif sind deren etwa 40 
angegeben. 

Die Haoptbeschaftignngen der Galla sind Ackerbau and Viebzacht; 
iind der erstere. wird in der Umgebung der Ddrfer so aas^edehnt be- 
trieben, dass ans Mangel an Futter fUr die bedeutenden Heerden oft 
sehr entfernte Weidepl&tze gesucbt werden miissen, was zu bestiiD- 
digen Streitigkeiten mit den benacbbarten StSmmen Vcranlassnng gibt 
In den DGrfern selbst sorgen Handwerker, besonders Weber , Gerber, 
T5pfer, Rieiner, Metallarbeiter etc. fiir Lebens- nnd Kriegsbedttrfnifise. 

Die Regiemngsform ist bei den freien, d. L nicht irgend einer 
benacbbarten Macht tribntpftichtigen Oder nnterworfenen St&minen mo- 
narchisch-despotisch^ und zwar erbt entweder die Wiirde des K5nig8 
(mott) /tuf die m&nnlichen (in einzelnen St&mjnen anch auf die weib- 
lichen) Descendenten , oder der moti wechselt dnrch Wahl, welche 
nach einer gewissen Zahl von Jabreii erneuert wird. Unter dem moti 
stehen die %ore%a (Fursten), ans denen die Ortsvorsteher, aba ganda 
gewHhlt werden, wabrend die Ubrigen Machtigen des Stammes oor 
aba lafa sind, ein Verhaltniss, das ganz dem unserer adeligen Gats- 
herren oder Grnndbesitzer entspricht. 

Die Religion ist ein dnrch mancherlei Aberglanben getriibter 
Monotheismns. Die Galla verehren ein hdchstes Weseo* Wac* (nr- 
sprtingl. Himmel) welches allmUchtig, allwissend, allgatig, allweise 
ist, karz alle Eigenschaften besitzt, die ans Christen von anserer Oott- 
belt bekannt sind. Der Coitus besteht in Gebet and Opfern (die An- 
betung eines Baames wird von meinem Brader anf das Entschiedenste 
bestritten) ond greLft auch tief in alle Lebensverhliltnisse einf w^dd 
diese Natarreligion anch hOchstwahrscheinlidi niokt in ein System ge- 
bi«oht ist, so ist doch aas den Mittheilungen anwiderleglich dar/^u- 
thun, dass die an sie gekniTpften Ansichten tiber Moral eine schOne

Die Lante Ich^ tahj dj und dg^ welohe ihrer Natnr^niKsb zwischen

Neben diesen vier Consonlltnten babe ich mloh nooh der Bezeicb-

The second part of the Dictionary of the Galla Language 
intended as a companion to the first part and the Grammar 
^Uch have been already laid before the public. The editor is 
eonscious how much it lacks of being a complete vocabulary of 
Ais language; yet he believes that it will be useful to the 
^dent and serve as an aid to further investigations. Some 
<liscrepancies of orthography between it and the Grammar have 
been detected in the course of publication though they have 
lieen avoided with as much care as possible. It will devolve 
upon later inquirers to rectify these errors as well as to furnish 
& standard of correct pronunciation.
